5 Tips That Can Help Military Families Handle Moving

The brave people who serve in the armed forces put themselves in harm’s way to ensure American freedom. And on top of that service, military families are tasked with moving ten times more frequently than their civilian counterparts.

It’s not uncommon for military families to relocate at least once every 2-3 years and deployments occur with little warning in times of crisis. Those are why our valued community members must be prepared to pack everything and go on short notice. Americans owe our committed military personnel a debt of gratitude, and we hope these tips help your family transition a little easier.

1. Compile a Moving Portfolio

One of the organizational steps families can take is to bring all of their essential documents into one file. These typically include copies of birth certificates, social security cards, mortgage papers, bank statements, lease agreements, vehicle registration, insurance records, and your orders. Compiling copies of these items and placing them in a single binder with clear protective sleeves keeps them safe and organized.

2. Keep Belongings to a Minimum

One of the frustrations military families sometimes experience stems from accumulating more niceties than you can carry. After a couple of years in one place, people start to relax and allow their roots to grow. Unfortunately, military families have to make the additional sacrifice of relocating. Amassing non-essential products results in excess packing, moving, and sometimes having to purge items that cost you good money. It may be better to stick to necessities until the soldier in your family completes their duty.

3. Identify Military Moving Resources

A wide range of resources remain in place for service members who receive orders for a Permanent Change of Station (PCS) and Outside of Continental United States (OCONUS) move. Some moving companies offer special services for the military that include assistance with federal travel regulations, organizing every detail of your move, and complying with GSA Tender of Service guidelines.

A helpful online resource is the Military One Source which provides information about wide-reaching challenges unique to military life.

4. Identify Unaccompanied Belongings for Transportation

Although many PCS moves task families with packing and loading items for a lower-48 move, some deployments are more complicated. Getting OCONUS orders means some things will travel with you, and others may follow. It may be in your best interest to identify essentials and non-essentials in advance. Having a list of items you plan to have shipped can simplify the packing process and reduce the stress associated with last-minute decisions.

5. Discuss the Possibility of Moving With Children

Youngsters often prove resilient once they arrive in a new community and school. But the unknown tends to make people of all ages feel unsettled. That’s why it’s essential to talk about the differences between military and civilian life openly. Children generally feel a sense of pride that parents do their part to keep the country secure. One of the critical items does involve standing a post wherever and whenever necessary. Youngsters who grow up in military families sometimes look back fondly on the opportunity to experience different parts of the country and world. Consider highlighting a sense of adventure.

Members of military families do not have to take on all the tasks of moving to a new base when the time arrives. As experienced moving professionals, we offer support to reduce your workload and help you relax. If you are a military family tasked with relocating, contact us today.

Trouble with plastic totes…

Customers: Do you plan to pack your belongings for your long-distance move?  Consider the following before you purchase plastic totes.

McLaughlin Transportation abides by the Moving industry’s Best Practices:

Ensure the safe delivery of customer’s belongings

Moving cartons are designed and rated to hold packed items safely and can be stacked from floor to ceiling inside a van and transported s long distances without incident.

Movers will give away ‘gently used boxes’ to their customers who pack their own belongings. Ask your move coordinator for the sizes you need. Gently used boxes are better quality than buying non-rated moving cartons. Cartons sold at box stores have sizes on them; look to see if a weight rating is also printed on the bottom. Boxes that McLaughlin Transportation buys are the highest quality made. Each box will hold a specific amount of weight when packed full. McLaughlin Transportation’s boxes will withstand the pressure of being stacked inside a van from floor to ceiling, and the rigors of being transported long distances without incident.

Size matters: Pack your belongings inside the correct size box:

Book cartons are small boxes because books are heavy. Book cartons are designed as strong as the other cartons once packed to the top and sealed.  They can be stacked inside a van from floor to ceiling and will withstand traveling long distances without crushing.  Dishpack cartons are built to hold heavy dishes, pots and pans and small appliances. Dishpack cartons are built to withstand being stacked and the rigors of long distance moving. TV cartons are designed with special foam inside to protect delicate TV’s.


Plastic totes have become a common way for people to store their unused belongings inside their home. When the plastic totes are stacked and placed on a stationary shelf inside a climate-controlled area in the home they prove worthy. However, in recent years, people moving long distance are not repacking items from their plastic totes into cartons, instead, they are shipping the totes ‘as is’. This has become problematic because the quality and durability of totes run the gamut from extremely tough to easily subject to damage.

How does a consumer determine if a plastic tote is suitable for moving?

Search online: enter the brand name of the tote you already own or are thinking of buying. Read the manufacturer’s description and warrantee information. LOOK for ‘suitable for moving’ written in the description or warrantee. If it is suitable for long distance moving, it will say it is.


In cold weather, plastic becomes brittle causing the totes to crack, break apart and collapse. In warm weather plastic totes melt, expand and collapse.

Long distance movers have the option to:

 Open and inspect items packed inside plastic totes to determine if the contents can be safely transported. If the driver believes the items need to be repacked, this can hold up “your” move; Drivers do not carry packing supplies in their vans.

Nothing precludes a customer from using plastic totes and movers are not prohibited from accepting them for transport. However, customers need to understand that if they take the risk and pack breakables or items of sentimental value inside plastic totes for their long distance move the totes and contents may break due to the inherent nature of plastic totes.

Moving to a new home in a new town can be an exciting new venture. But, let’s face it, the actual ‘moving’ part can be challenging.

Trust the professionals at McLaughlin Transportation, New England’s Trusted Mayflower agent to move your precious belongings locally, long distance or around the world.

Setting Up Your New Office Space When Relocating Your Business

The key to setting up your new office space efficiently on moving day is to plan the move and space carefully ahead of time. Here are some tips:


The first step in setting up your office space is establishing a budget, as with all business projects. When budgeting, consider not just the cost of designing the space and buying equipment and furnishings. Weigh those costs against the cost of lost productivity due to a less than optimal space. Or perhaps downtime from equipment that doesn’t work or maybe a system that has crashed.

Consider How Much Space You Need

Depending upon your business, you’ll typically need between 150 to 300 square feet per employee. This includes common areas such as the break room.

You’ll also want to plan for growth. Allowing some space for each employee to personalize their workspace will positively affect their mood and performance. If you have remote employees, remember to plan a space for them when they come into the office.

Consider Your Team in the Design

Some teams, such as creatives, work better in more open designs where collaboration is more manageable. Others, such as the finance department, tend to perform better in a closed-plan layout. Collaborate with your team to decide which will work best for your team and its working style.

Once you’ve decided whether you want a closed or open plan, determine the exact floor plan. In advance, determine where you’ll place critical items.

Moving is a great time to modernize office furniture and equipment. Be sure to measure carefully so that your furnishings fit the design.

Plan Cabling and Wiring

Once you’ve decided where to place furniture, work with the tech department on setting cables and wires. IT professionals working with designers and builders will make this process more efficient. Asking a mover specializing in electronics to move them, rather than having employees bring their own computers, will ensure a smooth transition.

Plan Space for Visitors

Consider what type of waiting area will work best for your business. Do you need a reception desk in the waiting area, for example? Do you need electronics? And, will people spend enough time waiting to require magazines and refreshments?

The waiting area is typically the first place visitors see, so you’ll want it to be attractive. If carriers deliver packages to the reception desk, you’ll need storage space to keep these packages out of sight.

Consider Lighting Needs Carefully

Proper lighting is essential for employees to accomplish their tasks efficiently. A study published in Ergonomics Magazine shows that lighting also impacts mood. If the lighting is too dark or too bright, the mood declines.

Consider Color

Color also affects mood and productivity. Studies show that specific colors have different effects; the best color for each office will vary. Red may boost productivity for those in physically demanding jobs, while blue may boost productivity for tasks that require mental focus. Yellow may get ideas flowing and bring optimism, while green is calming.

6 Helpful Things to Do Before Your Movers Arrive

Moving is a lot of work and takes significant planning. Preparing before the movers arrive helps the move go smoothly, ensures that the movers relocate your possessions correctly, and leads to an overall safer move for all involved. Here are six essential things movers want their customers to know.

1. Fully Pack Belongings Before Movers Arrive

Be packed and ready to go when the movers arrive unless you have prearranged a full-service move that includes packing. This way, the movers can simply load the boxes and furniture on the truck and get everything transported quickly. Depending on how the contract is structured, delaying packing can end up costing more money.

2. Label Boxes By Room

Before the movers arrive, label each box clearly with the room it’ll eventually go in at your new home. It helps the movers load efficiently and ensures that the boxes end up where they are supposed to be, alleviating stress for both the mover and the customer.

3. Be Accessible

With their level of experience, professional movers know what they need to do, and it’s best to give them space to do their job. It’s essential to remain accessible during the moving process, though. Stay nearby or be available by phone or text to answer questions or clarify details about your move. This helps to avoid misunderstandings and ensures a smooth relocation.

Pro Tip: To prevent injury and disruption, make arrangements for small children and pets to be taken care of at someone else’s home. Or set up a safe room at your home where they can remain supervised throughout the day. 

4. Remove Possessions From Furniture

Consult with your movers about removing your belongings from furniture, including desks, dressers, armoires, and other already bulky items, before packing. Some movers prefer that you clear these areas out to prevent unsafe moving conditions and avoid breakage, damage, or injury.

5. Preplan for Parking and Other Logistics

People who live in townhouses, apartments, cities, or other communities with limited parking should determine in advance where the truck can park and how far away it’ll be. Additionally, it’s helpful to find out about any time limits for parking or special permits.

Also, let the mover know about any other logistics they’ll need to plan for. This includes long carries, winding staircases, multiple floors, tight entryways, and pinpointing other areas that might require special handling or planning for moving large or bulky items.

6. Plan for ‘Non-Allowable” Items

Movers are not allowed to transport certain household items on moving trucks. For instance, every moving company has a list of materials it isn’t allowed to move. Typically, movers cannot transport hazardous materials, perishable foods, plants, and pets on a moving truck. Ask your mover ahead of time for their list of non-allowable items so that you can make alternate moving plans or discard these items.

3 Helpful Steps When Planning a Long-Distance Move

Are you planning to move far away this year? If so, you’ve got your work cut out for you! There are many things you can do to make your long-distance relocation a success. Getting started early and following our tips below can help.

1. Stay Organized

Long-distance relocations require a great deal of organization.

Keep Your Papers in a Binder

Put all of your essential papers in a binder. You should include your new lease or paperwork for your new home purchase, information about your new job in your new city, and other vital documents. Doing this will prevent your essential papers from becoming lost while you’re packing and also helps you find what you need quickly.

Make a Moving Timeline

When should you begin packing? By what date should you have found a new apartment? When do you need to switch your utility services? Knowing the deadline on all these important events will help you avoid mistakes resulting in delays and more stress. Make a moving timeline, then set your calendar with this information, so you’ll always know what your deadline is.

Purge Items in Your Home You Don’t Need

Clutter makes moving challenging — this is especially true when you’re moving long distances. Purge items that you don’t need by cleaning out your garage, selling things online, giving items to charity, and discarding things you don’t need anymore.

2. Get the Right Boxes

Use sturdy, solid boxes designed for moving to get your belongings to your new home. Cardboard moving cartons are flexible, durable, and lightweight yet strong— this makes them ideal for stacking and using for a relocation.

Plastic totes may seem like a great way to pack your belongings when moving long-distance; however, many plastic totes are not designed to stack or withstand varying climatic conditions. When stacked from floor to ceiling inside a moving truck and then transported long-distance, they can easily be damaged. In cold weather, totes freeze, crack, break and collapse. In hot weather, totes become soft, expand, break and collapse.

Check with your moving company as some offer customers gently used moving cartons for free. 

3. Find the Right Moving Company

Perhaps most important of all is to identify the right moving company for your long-distance relocation. Your moving company is a partner in your relocation, but your relocation could become far more stressful and complicated with the wrong partnership. When you’re looking for a moving company, look for:

  • Years of experience. The longer your moving company has been in business, the more they’ll know about long-distance relocations.
  • Good customer service. You’re going to rely heavily on your moving company’s customer service to respond to your questions and concerns. Find a company that provides good overall customer service.
  • Affordable rates. Long-distance relocations are expensive. Shop around to find a company that you can afford, but don’t hire the cheapest company to save money. Select a professional moving company with a good reputation and fair rates.

Tips for Setting Up a New Home Office After a Move

Home offices are more important than ever. With over 40% of the labor force working from home, many people now have home offices where they can get work done in the safety and comfort of their own home. If you’re moving into a new home, then you have a perfect opportunity to make your home office everything you want it to be. These tips can help you set up a home office that is just right for your needs.

Choose the Right Room

Choose a room that has the qualities that you’re looking for in a home office. Below are some of the characteristics you should consider when deciding which room is suitable for your home office.

  • Privacy – Choose a room that offers sufficient privacy to conduct business.
  • View – Look for a room with a window, perhaps one with a view of your front or backyard. Natural sunlight has physical and mental health benefits. 
  • Size – Most home offices are relatively small, but you may need something larger or even a waiting area if you accept clients at your home.

Paint It

Maybe the paint in your new home office is sufficient, but if you didn’t pick the color yourself and it doesn’t suit you, consider painting it. Choose a color that you find relaxing and conducive to work. Painting the room will help it feel new and fresh and more fully your own.

Install Proper Office Furniture

You might have started working from home with an old desk and inexpensive chair. Still, if you’re planning to work from home regularly, then you should have appropriate office furniture that’s comfortable and ergonomic. It’s also essential to have proper office storage to avoid losing things and ensure that you can find the file folders you need when you need them.

Go shopping for proper office furniture. You might need to invest in a desk that’s more sophisticated than anything you ever imagined for yourself. This is your opportunity to set up an ideal workspace. Spending a little more now can save you money in the future, as good quality office furniture may last longer. You are investing in yourself.

Personalize It

Do something to your office to make it more personal for you. Decorate the room with indoor plants to add tranquility and naturalness. Add in some pictures or decor that you find beautiful and inspiring, or install some new furniture that is comfortable for lounging, even though you might not need it. Make the room a place that you wouldn’t mind spending quiet time, even outside work hours.

Manage the Wires

A home office often has many cords and cables running through it. From power cables to charging cords, you have a lot to coordinate.

Invest in figuring out a cord management system to tame those wires. Depending on where your outlets are, you might need to use power strips and extension cords as well. With so many cords strung throughout your office, you will want to make sure you find a way to do it safely. (like with cord covers).

Here are some tips for managing your cables:

  • Get wireless devices
  • Bundle the cables
  • Use power strips
  • Use a mounted power strip
  • Manage the disorder with cable covers

When your cords are in order, it helps increase productivity, positivity, and creative thinking in your at-home work environment.

A Mover’s Guide to Packing Your Bed Linens

By their very nature, bed linens are among the less challenging things in your home to pack. But, even though they aren’t delicate like your fine china, it’s still essential to take care when packing them for your household move

It’s essential to take measures to control their weight and bulkiness and protect them from harmful elements. If you’re packing your home for an upcoming relocation, these tips can help.

Use Medium-to-Large Boxes

Bed linens are surprisingly heavy and bulky when piled together in one spot. Linens placed in a box together can be challenging to move, especially if the box is too big. At the same time, you’d need quite a few small boxes to house all the bed linens in your home. When packing your linens, choose boxes that are medium to large. Look for boxes that are large enough to fit more than one set of linens at a time but not so large that you have a hard time lifting the box when filled with sheets and blankets.

Control Weight With Pillows

Does it seem like the box you’re packing is getting to be a little too heavy? Fill the rest of the space in the box with a light-weight pillow. These snuggly household items tend to be less dense than other linens and, therefore, less weighty.

Pack Linens One Room At a Time

Pack all the linens for your master bedroom in one box, the linens for your child’s room in another box, and linens for your guest room in a third box, etc. Packing your linens room-by-room makes the unpacking process more manageable, especially if the linens are kept in the room where they’re used.

Line the Boxes with Packing Paper

Line the linens box with packing paper to prevent insects and moisture from damaging your sheets and blankets. Once you place the last linen in the box, put a piece of packing paper over the top of the box before closing it up.

Label the Boxes

Label the boxes indicating what they contain. Include the person’s name to whom the linens belong and what kind of linens are in the box. Precise and accurate labeling is essential if you’re planning to dig your linens out of the box quickly after moving so you can set up your bed that first night.

Use the Same Procedure For Towels

Use the same procedure to pack towels as you used to pack linens. Divide the towels up by the bathrooms you will use them in or by color if that is important to you. Label the boxes correctly, and use packing paper to protect the towels while they’re in the box.

8 Important Steps When Packing for a Move

Packing for a move is complex and involves many steps. If you’ve never moved before or are relatively inexperienced with moving, this checklist can help you through the process. Here are some suggestions.

1. Make a Game Plan

How much time will it take you to pack? What will you pack first, second, third, and so on? Which family members will help, and what will be their roles? Will you be hiring a full-service mover, or will you be packing your items on your own? Talk with family members to decide what will work for everyone. Once you’ve got a plan in place, you can get started with the packing process.

2. Buy Packing Materials

If you’re going to complete the packing on your own, buy packing materials to keep this process moving. Keep more packing materials on hand than you anticipate needing – you’ll probably need them. It’s beneficial to have extra markers, scissors, and packing tape to cut back on time spent hunting for the ones that go lost. Buy any specialized boxes you anticipate needing – like dish pack kits for your plates or wardrobe boxes for your clothes.

3. Learn How to Pack Properly

Packing is an art. If you’re not working with a full-service mover, you’ll want to know what these movers do to make packing easy. For example, place some crumpled paper on each carton’s bottom so that you create a cushion for the items you put inside. Fill empty spaces with crumpled paper to prevent things in the boxes from moving around.

Place delicate items inside their own small boxes, then put those boxes into a larger single box. Don’t overstuff boxes so that the lids must bend around the things inside.

4. Pack Seasonal Items First

Plan to pack seasonal items that you aren’t currently using and other things you don’t regularly use before packing them. Don’t pack up the items you use a lot until you’re close to the end of the packing process.

5. Declutter

Decluttering helps you organize your belongings and eliminate things you don’t need anymore. Sort through your items before packing and discard things that you won’t use in your new home. Rehoming trinkets from your junk drawer will help give you a fresh start in your new home.

6. Set Aside Restricted Items

Your movers will have a list of items that cannot be packed, like cleaning products and aerosols. Know what you can and what you can’t put in the moving truck, then set those items aside.

7. Follow Packing Best Practices

When you’re packing, follow these packing best practices.

  • Pack sharp items like knives and skewers on their own. Cover the pointed ends to prevent them from puncturing the box.
  • If deconstructing something to pack it, keep the screws and pieces with the item in a labeled plastic baggie
  • Wind up cords on electronics, then secure the cable to the item.

8. Make Unloading Easy

Label each moving box according to where it will go in your new home, then tape signs on the doors of each room at your new home to make unloading easier.

4 Ways to Acclimate to Rural or Suburban Life After Moving Out of a City

Recent reports indicate that 2020 saw a substantial increase in “urban flight.”  According to US News & World Reports, approximately 40 percent of adults living in cities indicated they would like to move to less populated areas, according to US News & World Reports.

The decision to pack up and move to rural and suburban landscapes can be a culture shock. The bright, big city lights are generally absent from small communities. People who are determined to leave the hustle, bustle, and noise behind to embrace a more laidback lifestyle will have to adjust to the new pace. Here are strategies that can help city transplants acclimate.

1. How to Manage Grocery Needs

Most suburbs have a supermarket within reasonable driving distance. People living out in the country may have to drive a solid hour to shop at a large store. 

Rural homeowners typically employ two strategies to deal with distance. The first is to buy in bulk, get a deep freezer and secure a generator in case of power outages. The second strategy is to grow fresh vegetables. When you grow your own food, you can provide your family with fresh produce and lower your monthly expenses.

2. Plan Your Time in Advance

The Eagles rock band may have summed up city life perfectly with their “Life in the Fast Lane” lyric, “Everything, all the time.” Suburban and rural life tends to be more measured. Cultural events such as live music and community gatherings might be more likely to occur only on weekends. This reality means that running out to a show on a Tuesday night might be off the table. People moving out of the city may acclimate better by planning their time at home and nights out on the town in advance. Consider using a calendar and phone alerts about upcoming events.

3. Learn to Relax and Be With Yourself

Concepts such as mindfulness and meditation can prove helpful in rural and suburban settings. Cities seem always to have something going on, and engaging in a distraction tends to be easy. Quiet towns can task people with grounding themselves.

Mindfulness and meditation can be an invaluable way to transition and embrace the seemingly small things in life. Taking time to prune roses, crafting, and just reading a good book are ways to relax and be at peace. Consider employing the formal structures of mindfulness and meditation as a gateway to improved appreciation.

4. Throw a Backyard BBQ and Invite Your New Neighbors

After the moving company has delivered all of your personal belongings, consider organizing a backyard barbecue. Invite friends, family members, and your new neighbors as a way to get to know them. An outdoor party can be a fantastic ice-breaker and sends a clear message you are putting down roots. It’s also a perfect opportunity to learn more about the community from long-time locals. As a newcomer, a little help from neighbors can increase your comfort and make your new place feel like home.

Should Retirement-Age People Move to an Accessible Home Now?

The natural effects of age on the human body typically result in muscle loss and limited mobility. According to the U.S. Census, about 10,000 people reach retirement age every day, and 73 million people will be 65 or older by 2030. That means in less than ten years, the second-largest age demographic would benefit from accessible homes. 

As everyday people plan for retirement and their golden years, the best time to move into an accessible home might be right now. If you are a Baby Boomer or anticipate mobility limitations, these are things to consider about moving into an accessible home.

What is an Accessible Home?

The federal government passed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in 1990 that requires all public buildings to adhere to building codes that provide people who use wheelchairs, walkers, and other mobility devices easy access. The ADA applies only to government and public facilities. Private homes are often retrofitted after a loved one loses mobility.

The Baby Boomer trend has not gone unnoticed by developers and contractors in recent years. Residential communities exclusively for people 55 and 65 and older have become lucrative investments. Contractors have also become open to new construction homes that meet many of the ADA guidelines. Purchasing and moving into an existing ADA-compliant home or planning a new one resolves an issue that will impact us all. We will all get older, and standard building designs can negatively impact our bodies.

How Would Moving into an Accessible Home Differ?

Homebuyers are sometimes turned off by the bulky wheelchair ramps in front of houses that are for sale. Typically, retrofitting does not give a home enhanced curbside appeal. But houses built with an eye toward accessibility integrate ADA elements into the design. These are ADA-compliant aspects of a property that look good and may add value.

  • Open Floor Plans: Merging the kitchen, living, and dining room into vast open living space has been a hot-trending floor plan for decades. This layout provides accessible benefits by its very nature. It eliminates narrow doorways and thresholds considered impediments to people who use wheelchairs and walkers.

  • Attached Garages: One of the ways ADA-compliant homes can overcome awkward wheelchair ramps is by including an attached garage. They allow people with physical limitations to exit vehicles in a controlled space and enter through a side door. Building codes generally require a garage floor to be about six inches lower than the primary living space. Negotiating that height won’t need a big ramp. A comprehensive demographic of people also find attached garage beneficial for unloading groceries or managing small children.

  • Bathrooms: ADA-compliant bathrooms are typically more spacious and include walk-in showers, among other amenities. Walk-in showers are another trendy home design element that adds value and a leisure experience.

  • Countertops: Homes with accessibility in mind install countertops at a slightly different height than standard construction. They are usually positioned between 24-36 inches without cabinets below. This offers clearance underneath for mobility devices. The countertop height also tends to deliver improved ergonomics. Preparing meals or folding laundry at ADA height puts less strain on your back.

Like all of us, Baby Boomers will come to a point in life when the body doesn’t cooperate. By moving into an accessible home now, you can avoid the cost and cumbersome look of retrofitting later.
